About Brockport Foundation Scholarships

Scholarships from the Brockport Foundation recognize students for their academic excellence, co-curricular activities, and professional promise. The nearly 350 donor-created scholarships available through the Brockport Foundation recognize students in each of the three academic schools as well as participants in related programs and in many student activities.

As part of the State University of New York, Brockport receives state funding and student tuition and fees to pay its expenses. Yet, to help meet student needs beyond what the state is able to provide, Brockport is fortunate to have donors who want to help students.

Scholarships Created by Donors

The Brockport Foundation is a non-profit fundraising organization affiliated with the University. The Foundation receives funding from donors — alumni, faculty, staff, friends, corporations, and other foundations — that it uses to enhance student experiences. Some donors are featured with their permission in our Scholarship Portal, AcademicWorks.

The majority of gifts to the Foundation support scholarships. Annually, the Brockport Foundation awards more than $600,000 in student academic support. The funds dedicated to the Brockport Foundation reflect the favorite programs, majors, or activities of donors. Donors also have thoughts on the qualities an ideal recipient of their scholarship should have. The result? Each scholarship has its own set of criteria, which can include grade point average requirements, year in school, and academic major, among others.

Application Timeline

For scholarships awarded for the 2023-24 academic year, students must apply for Brockport Foundation scholarships during the timeframe of November 15, 2022, to February 15, 2023, by completing the online application. The online application can automatically match eligible students with scholarships for which they meet the minimum criteria. However, students should expect to apply separately to individual scholarships that require additional information, which could be an additional reference, demonstrating community service, or answering specific questions.

Please note that students are no longer eligible to apply for scholarships awarded during the 2022-23 academic year.
